Gerald, March 5, 2009 This is my first GPS and I wanted a model that
comes with both maps of North America AND Europe.
I used it on a couple of trips here in Canada and
it's an amazing apparatus.
I bought the lifetime maps update from Garmin and
also did an update for the program.
We are leaving this coming June for France and I
have already entered some destinations that we
will visit. Thus when arriving at the airport, I
will have my first destination already entered.
This GPS repeats often the instructions, so you
really have to be absent-minded to miss an exit.
It even tells you to keep on the right or left
lane so you will not to be caught in an exit that
you do not want.
I'm really very satisfied till now. I will come
back after our trip in France to say how we made
out. Particularly the locking in a satellite in
Europe, which I read comments that it can take up
to 30 minutes. I'll see how it does.
I must add that I have appreciated very much
doing business with "GPSCITY.ca". My GPS was back-
order and I called a few times to enquire about
the delivery date. I was always answered very
patiently and courteously. When I ordered, the
price was lower and they kept my ordering price
the same. Thank you!
Marv Skelton, February 19, 2009 My first use of this product is in the state of
Hawaii on the Island of Hawaii. I have never
used it on the North American mainland.
I find it somewhat disappointing as it gets me
where I'm going, but needs exact co-ordinating.
Helpful if you know the exact address of your
destination but if you are depending on city
name or street name it will not find it.
Trying to find Liliokalani gardens park in Hilo
Hawaii and I typed in Liliokalani park. Garmin
didn't find it.
The Maps of Hawaii seem outdated. It thinks the
best way from Kailua Kona to Hilo is over a
highway that is not suitable for anything but a
4WD. Tourist information map shows that this
road is not to be used.
Did not show a "Costco" location in Kaluia-
Kona,using the "shopping" feature, but refers to
one 122KM away.
Does not find Highways by route number.
Example will find Island belt Highway but not
Once a destination has been reached it does save
it and store, so that's no problem.
It could improve by having a search engine that
gives everything for a word.
"Liliokalani" - every destination that has this
word in it should be displayed.
In it's defence, I must admit the user was not
very "gps" or computer literate, but so far it
is nothing but average for navigating through
places I have never been.
I would recommend it, with limitations to
others, assuming as I become more familiar with
the product, it will get easier to use.
To date it is just average.
Peter Lee, January 12, 2009 I ordered a Nuvi 770 with GPScity on Dec 15, and
they shipped it on the very next day. Efficient
and excellent Service ! I am planning a ski trip
to Chamonix, France in late January, 2009.
Definitely I need help in directions of getting
around these areas. I have not yet put it on the
real test, just those setup pages, pre-
inserting "routes" and "favorite way points",
gives me full confidence and peace of mind. Nuvi
770 is absolutely not flawless, MP3 is the part
I hate the most. I copied MP3 files (with songs
categorized in different folders) to the gadget.
It however, does not support "folder". All files
appear under the "root" directory, though you can
find particular file using, ARTIST, ALBUM...I
thought to myself "Playlist" should help. After
using this, I almost wanted to smash it. You can
always create a NEW playlist, but you can never
DELETE it nor change the name of playlist! If I
am not stupid, those Garmin guys are! After all,
this is a GPS, MP3, Bluetooth handfree... are
merely "Add-on" value. If you are not too picky,
I still would say, Don't leave home without it.
Terr & Julie, December 23, 2008 This is our first-ever GPS. We have found the Garmin
Nuvi 770 very user friendly and an amazing
technology. We took it on a recent trip to Myrtle
Beach, S.C., and thoroughly enjoyed its many benefits
both going to and returning from, and touring around
the Myrtle Beach area. We are planning a trip to the
UK in the new year, and look forward to using the
770's European-embedded maps.
